Why do so many IVF cycles fail?


Most patients who do IVF expect that the cycle is going to work. 
After all, isn't the technology great? Shouldn't they get results after spending so much money? Aren't they going to a doctor who's promising them that they have a very good chance of getting pregnant?
And surely God will be kind this time around ! After all, haven't they done everything humanly possible to have a baby ?
It's especially when the doctor shows them their top-quality blastocysts, they think that they are pregnant when these are transferred to their uterus.
But the reality is that an embryo is not a baby. Human reproduction is not efficient, because most embryos contain genetic defects which we cannot test for and which we cannot prevent.  This is the reason why most embryos do not implant, and this is why so many IVF cycles fail.
This is something which patients need to come to terms with !
I wish we had the technology to be able to overcome this problem, but that's still some time away. Till then, IVF patients need to learn to be patient !

What to find an IVF clinic which respects your time and intelligence ?
